After a month and a half of knowing the cause and issue, i've not had a problem. I no longer hibernate, and i've had no issues.
I do notice my eInk sometimes is slow to refresh (it waits for my Lookout Antivirus and a couple other things at startup to finish), and then refreshes to the "3 circle" default screen after the initializing one; but it works. Ebooks are good, everything else is fine.
I might start to try hibernation only while plugged in, but that's only when i have a half hour and a power supply just in case it does get stuck.
